Patient Comments (6)
in El Paso, Texas |
Most visits are in and out. Doesn't explain much. Gets offended when you question him about what he is doing to help you with your illness since nothing is helping. We had to ask for referrals instead of the Dr. Amakiri recommending you to see a specialist for other diseases. Spoke to several patients, we came across in either doctors office or hospital, and all 5 were disappointed with his practice. Some were in the process of changing doctors, some had already changes.

Doctor Amakiri was very kind as well as his nurse practitioners. He heard me out and solve my severe problems. He also has a good sense of humor. Total waiting time takes a bit but when he saw me he took his time and apologize for any inconvenience. I highly recommend this office.

Dr. Amakiri is an excellent doctor - (patient, understanding and has compassion) he is very caring and diligent in resolving your health issues whether it is a cold/allergy or something more serious.

Waited over an hour and half past appointment time to see him for a disability exam. He had absolutely no apology and went straight into barking orders rudely causing unnecessary pain during exam. I would say he is the most unprofessional provider I have ever dealt with and that is saying a lot being that I have seen medical providers in 4 different countries and worked in a clinic with doctors for the past 6 years.

I was not told he was not going to be here when I scheduled my appt. Saw his nurse practitioner. I was waiting in the room waiting 40 min before I saw her. Disappointed. Only second time here.
in El Paso, TX |
Was rude and didn't seem to care about why I was there in the first place. Was there for a second opinion and he claimed that because I didn't agree with my initial diagnosis from a different doctor he wouldn't fill out my FMLA paperwork. There were other issues at hand but I'd rather save my energy and not waste anymore time on him.
